Hundreds of student-led clubs and service programs cater to a vast variety of our students’ interests and offer important opportunities for leadership development. Student clubs represent a variety of interests on both the Beren and Wilf campuses. Supported by the student governments, student clubs run numerous exciting programs and events throughout the year, offering a great opportunity to engage in co-curricular interests. If a club does not yet exist, currently registered Yeshiva students can complete the process to establish one. The various divisions of student government offer programs and events indicative of the vast interests of the students under the guidance, training and support of the Office of Student Life. Shabbat programming throughout the year is filled with inspiring speakers, meaningful davening [prayer] and ruach [spirit] which make Shabbat one of the most exciting aspects of YU student life. Students enjoy lively meals, learning, singing and thought-provoking discussions. Both campuses provide a warm, exciting Shabbat experience that students look forward to, participating in special programming with dynamic guest speakers and interactive activities. They attend study sessions and meet informally with fellow students and faculty members. Students can take part in a variety of leadership training opportunities offered by the Office of Student Life—such as Quest. Quest, a weekly two-hour meeting every Wednesday
night, provokes thought and action. In those meetings, the philosophy of Jewish leadership provides a framework for understanding leadership theories and practical skills. Quest utilizes experiential exercises, text study, discussions, presentations, hands-on projects, online conversations, site visits and a leadership mission to engage participants in achieving the goals of the program. The Office of Student Life also offers firstname.lastname@example.org as a resource that prospective students and current students can rely on for prompt feedback in response to questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding all areas of YU life.

Staff members help create a community within the University for students by offering educational and social programming. Each residence floor and building constitutes a unique community. Staff members are available to help you navigate college life and dormitory living and are accessible to meet with students individually as needed. The students’ growth and development are important to staff members of the Office of University Housing and Residence Life. Throughout the year, the Office of University Housing and Residence Life plans various events on campus. Some of our past events include the nationally acclaimed Cholent Cook-off, YU Mini Open (mini golf tournament), and Midnight Madness (a healthy outlet for students to relax and enjoy hanging out with one another during finals week). RAs are available for support in the resident halls. RAs regularly plan floor programming, events and parties, always with an eye toward enhancing the residential experience, educational benefits, community needs, and health awareness—whether watching a movie in the lounge, listening to a shiur given by our roshei yeshiva or a lecture/ discussion led by a professor, to ensure students receive a rich, fun-filled, resident life experience.

The program enables students to incorporate study at Israeli yeshivot or universities into their college years, enhancing their academic experience. Israel’s leading educators teach an intense program of Jewish subjects including Talmud, Bible, Jewish law and thought, philosophy, Zionism and Jewish history. The Israel experience increases proficiency in oral and written Hebrew and enables students to learn firsthand about Israel’s land, people, history and culture. The S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program maintains a professionally staffed office in Israel to assist all program participants. YU’s Israel representatives visit schools regularly and offer academic guidance, career planning and personal counseling. In addition, the program sponsors lectures and activities where students can gather under the auspices of Yeshiva University, and a guidance center to provide support to help ease the occasionally challenging adjustment to a year’s study in Israel. The program’s team works closely with the staff of all the yeshivot involved in the program. Yeshiva University also sponsors major events for American students in Israel, such as lectures, melava malkas with YU rabbis, an InterSeminary Choir Competition, art and photo competitions, a career fair, bein hazmanim [between semester] programs, a women’s basketball league and weekly D’var Torah newsletters.
